Art deco ambiance, good food

Loved the decor of this place; for some reason I thought it'd be a typical ice cream parlor but was pleasantly surprised. Dark, rich, art deco with these fun little booths. Party of 2 had immediate seating early Saturday evening. Very friendly service. Fun choices in the cocktails. I had a... read more

What a really fun and unique place! Dark, romantic decor and the booth seats come equipped with a radio play! A dramatic soap opera involving an affair between a nurse and s doctor.

The restaurant is know for its interiors hand painted and huge TV screens for entertainment during meals.known for their soups and salads made from scratch is a big attraction for the health conscious customers. Servings are large, servings a bit slow with near full customers. The bar is always full. Their signature dessert is ice creams infused with alcohol. A... More

I have visited the Fountain several times before. Once I even brought a large group of high school families. Another time, I held a theater cast party here. But tonight I took my husband there for his first visit. We both loved our evening there together. My husband does not like loud, crowded restaurants, so I was a little nervous... More

Our group had lunch here and each of us ordered different things. We all were very satisfied with our food choices. Delicious! Our waiter was very attentive! Later in the afternoon we returned for their ice cream treats; they were outstanding! This place was one of our favorite restaurants in St. Louis.

Don't go here if you are counting calories but if you want to indulge in ice cream martinis, this is your place. Also the salad sandwich is quite tasty.

They sell food but we went for dessert. The ice cream in the pretzel cone was fantastic, the malts were perfect. A wide variety of favors, in an Art Deco setting.

Had lunch here recently with a friend, and enjoyed it very much. The service was excellent, and our food was delicious. I had the potato soup with crushed dill pickle...they were kind enough to let me try a tiny ramekin of it first...and it was outstanding! I also had the egg salad sandwich which was everything I want in an... More

I had lunch here when visiting St Louis for work. It was my first time and I was very impressed. The service was courteous, and extremely fast. Our food was delivered very quickly, within minutes. My panini was fresh and flavorful, the side salad full of crisp lettuce and veggies. I will return here again!
